Hooray, the Vern and Lettuce badges arrived! Aren't they cute?!



Here's a bunch of stuff I've been printing up for The Thing this saturday. They include signed art prints (get one for a fiver!) and my new 40-page collection: Nice Cup of Tea and a Deadline: Doodly bits & bobs Sarah made while she was supposed to be working. I'm also printing up some deluxe versions of the Airship comic I made with David O'Connell (tozocomic).


Dave printed up a bunch of Airship for the last fair, but they sold out straight away, so we need some more. I'm printing them on my computer so the tone comes out nicely and hand binding it, but it means it's a very fiddly process and takes AGES, so I only have eight copies so far. Urg. ...I will try to print more! I'm very proud of that little comics jam, it was some of the best fun I've had. Dave and I will be sharing a table at the Thing, along with Woodrow Phoenix.



This is the first collection I've done of my drawings, I hope people like it! (Thanks, dlasky, for the good advice about the title lettering.) The pages stick out a bit at the edges, but it looks a bit rough if I trim them with a scalpel, and I don't have time to go find a big industrial guillotine. So I will fancy the white bits around the edges look like a flash of knickers and pretend it gives my comic sex appeal.

Hi, Faye! I'm not sure yet about MCM Expo, I won't actually have a comic to represent, boo! I'm still working on pricing my stuff, but I think the badges will be 50p for the set of two. Are you coming to the Thing?

Excellent binding technique. Prevents rusty staples in the decades to come :)

I've had a few bad run-ins with staples! I use them if I have to, but it always seems that when I get together something nice, and the last thing is stapling them, something always goes wrong and the staple squishes the wrong way or something and messes it all up. :-P

Very nice - I may never look at saucily untrimmed comics the same way again. Hope you have plenty of them for Thing!

I hope so, a bit more work to do and I should have a tidy little stack of minis!
